I have a 26 series on a 2014 F150. Last year, the plow stopped raising fully. A couple inches shy of full height. I changed the oil and no change. Everything looks ok and the plow operates properly. I can’t get the emergency collar on the shaft because it won’t raise quite high enough. I used a floor jack and a piece of 4x4 and jacked it up as high as it would go. I still couldn’t get the collar on the shaft. So, I’m thinking it’s not a hydraulic issue. Something mechanical maybe? Anything I can check before bringing it to the shop? Thanks!

I would disconnect the lift cylinder from the plow frame completely and see if it fully extends under no load. It might be bent or binding.

So, unbolt it from the framework and it will pull out by hand? How do I know if it is coming out all the way? Is there a measurement? How do I measure? Thanks for any info!

You will need to call a dealer/tech support to find out that length of the cylinder when fully extended.
